The stars of Little Britain return for this one-off comic look at Brexit. Originally broadcast on Radio 4, Little Brexit includes exclusive, never before heard-or-broadcast sketches. Brexit. Brexit. Brexit. The referendum has united this country like never before. Everybody loves Brexit. But how will Brexit affect the ordinary people of Britain? On the 31st of October 2019, Britain finally didn't quite yet leave the EU. To celebrate this, Matt Lucas and David Walliams returned for a special episode of their much-loved sketch show Little Britain, the hit comedy that moved from radio to TV in 2003, running for three series, and went on to win back-to-back BAFTA awards for best comedy programme. News of the show was kept secret right up to the moment Matt & David walked out on stage to a tremendous roar. Up to then, it had simply been called 'The All Star Brexit Show' complete with fake billing. At that moment, the BBC flicked the billing, the title and the photo - and the press went nuts. Little Brexit was written and performed by Matt Lucas and David Walliams, who were joined by an all-star cast, including the one and only Tom Baker (Doctor Who), Joann Condon (Little Britain), Anthony Head (Cabin Pressure, Bleak Expectations), Ruth Jones (Gavin and Stacey, Stella), Samantha Power (Waterloo Road) and Paul Putner. The show was a collaboration between Little Britain Productions, and Pozzitive, proud producers of Cabin Pressure, Thanks A Lot, Milton Jones!, Jeremy Hardy Speaks To The Nation, The Brig Society, The Castle, Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive & Agendum... Produced by the producer of the original Little Britain shows on Radio 4, Ashley Blaker, the show was a Little Britain Production co-produced with Pozzitive. Written and performed by Matt Lucas and David Walliams Also starring Joann Condon, Anthony Head, Ruth Jones, Samantha Power and Paul Putner and the voice of Tom Baker. Music by David Arnold Produced by Ashley Blaker Executive Producer - Geoff Posner A Pozzitive and Little Britain production for BBC Radio 4Show more
